Sure but sometimes it is worth knowing if you failed because of bad luck (and have a good chance next time the same action will succeed) or because of your limitations (and next time you would probably fail as well).
It is a good remark with the death mages but I think they can still prove valuable. They will not kill the boss outright but they can still weaken him. Their spells will probably be all quite difficult, though, as they manipulate directly with the target's soul.
Luckily, there is no death mage in the group so I do not need to worry about it too much.
Mod post up. There is quite a lot going on so if I have forgotten to mention someone or something please complain.
Now we will have a nice off time where you can chat, loot and lie to each other however you like.
When you were creating your character I forgot to mention that on top of the free skill Cananatra had granted all of the player characters one extra point to character statistics. So are granted one as well, you can raise any stat you want by one. Sorry for not saying it outright, I hope I have not prevented some extra cool combo.
